The Boldt Decision
In 1975, U. S. Judge George Boldt ruled that treaty Indians in Washington are entitled to half the harvestable catch of salmon and steelhead. This decision has had wide-reaching effects both emotionally and economically. First the views of those most affected by the decision--commercial, sports and Indian fishermen, and those in related industries--are presented. Finally a studio discussion is shown with representatives from state fisheries, the court and Indian and non-Indian fishermen.
